This is the woman Bill Clinton is alleged to have had an affair with...former White House intern, Monica Lewinsky...who was 21 years-old at the time. It's tied to the Paula Jones case because Lewinsky is one of several women believed to be involved in Jones' attorneys' investigation of Clinton's sexual history. The Washington Post reported that Clinton, along with his friend and advisor Vernon Jordan, told Lewinsky to deny the idea of an affair with the President. Lewinsky's lawyer confirmed that she has already given an affidavit in the case. WILLIAM GINSBURG/LEWINSKY'S ATTORNEY: THE MEAT OF THE AFFIDAVIT DENIES THERE EVER WAS A SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Now there's word that independent counsel, Kenneth Starr will be investigating allegations of perjury, false statements and obstruction of justice involving the President. The Post also reports that another former White House aide tape recorded conversations that she had with the ex-intern...where Lewinsky allegedly states that she had an affair with Clinton and that he asked her to cover it up.))

And when McIntyre got another of his 7 assists to Harold Jamison on the baseline for the slam. Clemson hit the half on top 36-to-22.
